Gear Review: Trinity Force 7-Inch Atlas Keymod Freefloat Rail

Trinity Force knows there’s a market for good looking, reliable AR-15 / MSR parts and accessories that don’t cost a fortune. Their products are foreign-made to help keep costs down, and the quality of some components is reflective of that approach. Trinity Force recognizes that not everyone needs or wants (or can justify paying for) high-end components. […]

Gear Review: Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24mm Riflescope

The AR-15 is one of the most versatile firearms platforms in the world, available in a myriad of calibers and configurations. Without the proper optic, though, the AR’s flexibility — for hunting, self-defense, target shooting or plinking — is easily greatly diminished. Is the Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6×24 variable magnification rifle scope up […]

Gear Review: Vortex Torque Wrench Mounting Kit

Back in June when I was at C.a.R Firearms talking to Fred Hastings about how he uses a digital protractor at his workbench, I was introduced to Vortex’s Torque Wrench Mounting Kit. Fred has a nice selection of torque wrenches which include the usual (and some unusual) choices, but his go-to choice is the fairly […]

Gear Review: MagnetoSpeed T1000 Target Hit Indicator

As we saw last week, MagnetoSpeed is branching out from chronographs into other firearms-related gear. Next up for them is a product designed to solve the frustrating difficulty of target impact verification at long ranges. Employing bright LEDs redirected by a flexible fiber optic slab, the T1000 Target Mounted Hit Indicator provides clear hit (and […]

Gear Review: GEMTECH QDA Quick Detach Suppressor Adapter

A few weeks ago we checked out an auto-advancing target system from Lyman. Next up from TTAG’s First World Problems Desk is a solution from GEMTECH to avoid the finger-bleeding terror of having to screw a suppressor on and off a firearm. Often, this involves as many as a dozen full rotations! Thankfully, GEMTECH’s new […]

Gear Review: MagnetoSpeed M-Series Grip System

Tired of that wasted empty space inside your hollow AR-15/AR-10 grip? While some brands have a cap on the bottom, allowing users to stuff whatever they want (size permitting) inside, MagnetoSpeed has gone a different direction and created a system of useful accessories that lock into their grip. The M-Series Grip itself comes with a […]

Gear Review: Sitka Gear Bomber Belt for Sidearm Carry

Sitka Gear is the crème de la crème of hunting equipment. The only consistent knock on Sitka’s products I’ve heard over the years is the price. But the quality of the Gore-Tex®, WINDSTOPPER®, and Primaloft® technologies utilized across their products combined with the high level of craftsmanship have always been unimpeachable. In preparation for this year’s […]

Gear Review: Primary Arms Advanced 30mm Red Dot

When it comes to affordable optics, many of the house-brand offerings from Primary Arms have been TTAG favorites. Whether it was their 4-14×44 Mil Dot FFP Scope, their 6x scope with .22LR reticle, their 1-6x ACSS scope, or their 2.5X Prism Scope with ACSS Reticle, Primary Arms products typically (but not always) have gotten high […]

Gear Review: Caliber Dynamics Tomahawk GLOCK Trigger

I like the feel of a flat trigger, running one on my go-to AR-15, my competition pistol, my home defense SBR and, now, my GLOCK 19 MOS. This adjustable affair from Caliber Dynamics is called the Tomahawk Trigger, and it’s designed to improve the look, feel, and trigger pull quality. The hard coat anodized, aluminum […]

Gear Review: Suarez International Flat and Straight Patrol Grade Trigger for GLOCK

Even the most die-hard GLOCK fanboy has to/should/must admit that Gaston’s motto of “perfection” doesn’t include the triggers in his guns. That said, arguably, the standard-issue GLOCK gas-pedal is one of the better triggers in the striker-fired cohort, if not the best. Though there’s a long take-up, the break is reasonably crisp, and there’s plenty […]
